Upton + Partners Presents Residential “Market Square” Plan for Greenway Parcel 9 Development

Upton + Partners presented its project proposal to MassDOT and the Parcel 9 RFP Committee members this week. The proposal includes a 119 new residential units and a specialty food market on the ground floor. The developer will contribute $2.1 million of public improvements to benefit the Haymarket Pushcart Association and will solicit $1.5 million of MassWorks Infrastructure.

The presentation took place on Tuesday, May 1, 2012 at the Mariner’s House in North Square, North End. The video contains both the presentation and the Q&A period with the RFP committee and public in attendance.

Four bids were submitted in response to the RFP issued by the State’s transportation authority, MassDOT, that owns the parcel. The triangular lot, known as Parcel 9, is adjacent to Haymarket, Blackstone St. and the Rose F. Kennedy Greenway.

The four Parcel 9 bidders are the Boston Museum, Blackstone Market by DeNormandie Companies, Haymarket Square, by Normandy Partners and Market Square by Upton Partners. (See Four Developers Bid on Parcel 9 Project, Adjacent to Greenway and Haymarket.)
